Wine is a free software application that aims to allow computer programs written for Microsoft Windows to run on Unix-like operating systems. Wine also provides a software library, known as Winelib, against which developers can compile Windows applications to help port them to Unix-like systems.

Wine is not an emulator, but is instead a compatibility layer, providing alternative implementations of the DLLs that Windows programs call, and a process to substitute for the Windows NT kernel. Wine is predominantly written using Black-box testing reverse-engineering, to avoid copyright issues.

The name Wine initially was an acronym for WINdows Emulator. Its meaning later shifted to the recursive backronym, 'Wine Is Not an Emulator. While the name sometimes appears in the forms WINE and wine, the project developers have agreed to standardize on the form Wine.

In a 2007 survey by of 38,500 Linux desktop users, 31.5% of respondents reported using Wine to run Windows applications. This plurality was larger than all x86 virtualization programs combined, as well as larger than the 27.8% who reported not running Windows applications.

The project lead is Alexandre Julliard.
